Eighties rockers Duran Duran
were forced to cancel a concert in France on Wednesday after keyboardist Nick Rhodes
learned of his father's sudden death. The veteran stars were due to play in Nice, just one night after becoming the first band ever to play in France's famous Louvre Museum in Paris.
But the gig had to be pulled at the last minute.
In a statement, the group apologized for the cancelation, but hoped "that everyone will understand that only such tragic circumstances would keep them from a performance."
The British band is expected to make up for the scrapped show on their "next Continental run", but it will not be on their current tour due to scheduling conflicts.
